The other day after school, Jono hops in the car and says to me almost immediately.
"Mum, can I cuddle a Koala?"
I thought that school may have been learning about Australia, or watching a video, or talking about going to the zoo... or something.
So I repeated it back to him to make sure I had heard him right, then asked him "Where is the koala? Is it in a Zoo?"
"Is it in Australia?"
Slight exasperation "No Mum"
"Where is it then?"
Shoving it into my face to be sure I could see it " This one!"
After that he attached it to his school bag and it has stayed there ever since.
